No new route development is allowed until further notice. On July 19, 2019, the US Forest Service issued a notice that it would no longer allow the installation of new bolts or the creation of new climbing routes after manufactured routes were established, then subsequently removed/altered by climbers. In addition, the bolts/fixed anchors on an estimated 50 climbs at Ten Sleep have been affected in some manner that may or may not make them unsafe to climb. The list of altered routes can be found in a drop down on the main, "Ten Sleep Canyon" homepage. The US Forest Service, Powder River Ranger District, is actively working with the local LCO, the Bighorn Climbers' Coalition and Access Fund to develop a sustainable framework for route standards and a Climbing Management Plan for the canyon's future.
The movement is fantastic for the entire route length, and several hard sections require focus all the way to the anchor.
The climb consists of mostly great rock until the last 10 feet where some crumbly stuff is encountered. The rock may be a bit sharp in spots.
This route is overshadowed by the other classics in the area, but is well worth the effort, and deserves more traffic.
